Winola Ziegler. Kitchen Islands. April 21st , 2020.
And according to a survey by the National Association of Home Builders more than 70% of buyers want an island in their kitchen, and of those, 50% consider it a must-have. Since it’s apparent that adding an island is a sound investment, we’ve gathered 60 of our favorite kitchen island ideas to use for inspiration.
Many timber home owners are finding that when it comes to designing ample kitchen space, one island simply isn’t enough. Dual islands with designated work zones and specialized storage areas are cropping up more and more, giving the kitchen ample surface space for multiple chefs to perform their culinary magic.
Built in kitchen islands come in a variety of styles and shapes in addition to the galley island. An L-shaped island is large and therefore yields great storage and additional seating space. A downside of this is that it blocks a considerable portion of the kitchen space.
The moment you store your groceries, utensils, dishes and electrical appliances in your kitchen, it is clear that despite the abundant storage space, you have very little workspace. Think of the moments you are many cooks in the kitchen; there is literally not enough space. It is for this reason that designers came up with the kitchen island.
Built-in kitchen islands are a popular style seen today. A galley-style island is the most common. This option is typically made with the same cabinets and countertops as the rest of the kitchen. The cost varies because of this. If you choose granite countertops, the price will increase. Size of the island is also a cost factor.
From creating more counter space to adding additional seating, we’ve selected a few different kitchen island ideas that will help you get the most out of it. Choose one or combine multiple of the design elements below to create the feature that works best in your room.
Keep it simple while adding value by using an island to significantly increase the amount of counter space in your kitchen. Having more counter space adds obvious benefits: more room for meal prep, multiple chefs and can serve as an eating area. Create contrast by using a different material or color for the island counters than you did in the rest of the room. If your regular countertops are white quartz, try black or a dark stained wood for the island.
